A network for historic guitars and vihuelas
“The Genesis of Fantasy” — Internationally Acclaimed classical guitarist Stanley Alexandrowicz performs an evening of virtuoso guitar works spanning four centuries. Beginning with the masterful “Ouverture de la Grotte de Versailles (de Lully)” by Robert de Visee (court guitarist to Louis XIV), his program will feature masterworks by the 19th Century’s greatest composer-guitarists: Napoleon Coste (France), J. K. Mertz (Hungary), and Johann Dubez (Vienna). Contemporary compositions by some of America’s greatest living composers dominate the second half of the program, and include Ernst Bacon’s tuneful “Americana—Hymn-tune Suite,” Edward Green’s powerful “Genesis—Variations for Guitar,” Brian Fennelly’s urbane “Maverick Prelude and Tango,” and conclude with Eric Sessler’s fantasy-work “Bombadiliana” — based on Tolkien!
